This is the fourth consecutive year that Nycomed has received this
OAKVILLE, ON, April 12 /CNW/ - Nycomed Canada has once again been ranked
as one of the best places to work, coming seventh in the 2011 list of
Canada's Best Workplaces, an annual survey conducted by the Great Place to Work® Institute of Canada, Inc (GPTW).
The Best Workplaces list profiles 84 Canadian companies that have been
shortlisted from more than 230 companies across the country. Companies
are selected through a detailed employee survey that looks at how
employees view their workplace, as well as an audit of the corporate
culture, values and philosophies that shape the relationship between
the company and their employees.
"We are delighted that once again we have received this prestigious
designation," says Mike Egli, the new CEO of Nycomed Canada. "Of all
our awards this is one that gives us the greatest sense of pride as it
truly reflects how our employees - our most valuable asset - feel about
the company they work for. To be the best, we must attract and retain
the best talent in Canada. At Nycomed we do this by providing an
enriching work environment that makes our staff feel good about coming
to work and being the best they can be. This award proves that we
truly walk the talk and deliver on our employee promise."
A great place to work is one where you trust the people you work for,
have pride in what you do and enjoy the people you work with. Nycomed
has developed a number of programs and workplace practices to foster
this type of environment including: rewards and recognition programs,
flex time, a true commitment to staff work-life balance, a casual and
collaborative environment, effective internal communications and a
strong community relations and social responsibility program.

businesses ranging in size from 50 to 999 employees for medium size
companies, and 1,000 or more for large-size corporations.
Two thirds of the company's score comes from employee responses to the

their workplace. One third of the final score is derived from the
'Culture Audit', a detailed questionnaire that examines the core values
and philosophies that underpin the company's people practices and the
interactions between the company and its employees.
